*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

A poorly executed image that meets the challenge.

Can I begin by echoing your commenter Deve and welcome you to DPC. One thing about DPC as you have found with this entry, is that they are not very tolerant of technical flaws such as poor focus, camera shake etc., and this is reflected by your own comments and in your low score.

You say you were in motion as you were taking the image? If that is the case, I strongly advise you to stop and take your time over your next opportunity! Unless you were speeding by even at 1/500s you should have got a sharper result than this, but it may be the equivalent of camera shake but I think the problem is more likely to be poor focus. Either way the end result is far from perfect. You also have some flare in the right of the frame which I can't logically account for unless you were shooting through a window?

Having said everything I have which all sounds rather negative I do like your composition with the main subject at the bottom of the frame. The lighting is such that it emphasises the tradesmans vehicle with his company name on so towards that end it adds to the challenge theme.

I'm sorry you have got off to a lowly start but I hope you will have learnt from your efforts how important the technicalities are in getting a quality image. I wish you well with all your future entries, Sid

An image with potential whose title fits the challenge.

Given the nature of the challenge the title is as much a part of the viewers interpretation and therefore the end result as the image itself, taking both into account here I feel you have not made the most of the opportunity. I may be wrong but it just doesn't feel as though much thought or effort has gone into it.

I assume your crooked placement of the clock is deliberate though I'm not sure what if any relevance it has to the effect you were after. So, we have a crooked clock against an out of focus background of what? Clutter? Again I can't make the background contribute to the end result. The clock itself is poorly lit with harsh shadows some of which are obscuring parts of the face. I like that its in mono but thats a purely personal thing.

I think to give your title more meaning that I would have put the clock round to its correct position against a sufficiently focused background of an empty bed with ruffled pillows signifying the friend who has disappeared or something along those lines.

Sorry I couldn't be more positive but thanks for your submission, Sid

Comment by PuppyDogMom:
Shadows on the face are a tad bit distracting, although can see where it might be a nice effect.
